Merry Christmas

I'm not sure if I will get a chance to post between now and 27th/28th - we are off on our round-the country jaunt to try and see as many people as possible in the smallest possible time frame. I might manage the occasional tweet ( but it is unlikely if I will manage to get to a computer.

We started our celebrations last night with foie gras and truffles with home made bread followed by duck and potato dauphinoise. If the festivities continue in a similar vein I will be very, very happy indeed.

And so, all that remains to say is have a very merry Christmas, yuletide or Saturnalia (depending on your religious, or otherwise, persuasion) and get busy nomming some top class foodage. The diet can start in '09.

Happy holidays to you! Try not to bust a gut with all that delicious holiday food :-)

We busted into the duck confit last night. Turns out we'll be spending Christmas in Vegas with my parents. It'll be 5 days of home-cooked Thai food. I can't wait! The diet will start promptly on January 1st!

That does sound like an excellent start to the festivities! Mine involved coconut cream pannacotta with fresh mango and a bottle of chateau d'yquem.
